If You Spend the Better Part of a Decade Sh%$ting on a Profession………

It appears to me that if you are going to do your level best to be horrible to teachers, and to make their lives a living hell, it's Probably not a good idea to let them bring firearms to work and to give them military training:
Tennessee has emerged this week as a center of the “the answer is more guns in schools” sentiment following the Newtown, Conn. elementary school shooting.

A member of the Republican-controlled legislature plans during its upcoming session to introduce a bill that would allow the state to pay for secretly armed teachers in classrooms so, the sponsor told TPM, potential shooters don’t know who has a gun and who doesn’t.

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam (R) has said the idea will be part of his discussions about how to prevent a shooting like the one in Newtown from happening in the Volunteer State.
This is not quite as stupid as McArdle's suggestion that we brainwash 6 year old children into gang tackling gun toting maniacs, but it's pretty f%$#ing close.

I am waiting for The Onion to announce mass layoffs, because they can no longer compete with reality.
